Sam Heughan shared some unseen snaps from behind the scenes of Outlander season seven.
Sam Heughan has wasted no time getting back to work after the long-running Sag-Aftra strike in Hollywood came to an end this week.
As we reported yesterday, the Scots star shared his “delight” at the news that the US actors union came to a ‘tentative’ agreement with studio bosses to end the historic 118-day official action.
The union, which represents around 160,000 members of the industry, downed tools on July 14, causing major disruption to Hollywood productions.
Sam, who stars as Jamie Fraser in Outlander, updated fans yesterday to tell them of his happiness at being able to get back on set as filming for the last ever season of Outlander gets underway.
As well as the second part of Outlander series seven due to launch next year, Sam has other projects going on too including his new series of Men In Kilts with Graham McTavish and new Channel 4 drama The Couple Next door with Eleanor Tomlinson.
Today, Sam got busy sharing some behind the scenes snaps from the most recent series of Outlander – which was divided into two parts, with the second instalment set to hit screens next year. Despite being filmed in Scotland, Outlander is a Starz production, meaning production and promotion of the show had to be halted until the strike came to an end.
As well as sending pulses in his huge fanbase racing with his first social media post about Outlander since studios downed tools, Sam also revealed that his character Jamie had suffered a nasty injury to his finger while filming for season seven.
In an Instagram story today, he shared a snap of himself dressed up as his historical Scot’s alter ego as he said as he showed off his bloody finger and said “got an owie”.
Sam also shared another behind the scenes snap of him joking about with a prop while filming for the show as he said: “Outlander calling……” “Did you watch the Season 7 midway finale???”
Fans flocked to the comments to share their appreciation at seeing him back in action. na25 said: “Why Jamie not red haired anymore? I loved his red hair!”
Gloriavanique added: “Hello! Brazil is waiting for the second part. Do you hear me? Hello… hello… ” Samheughan_frenchfan added: “I’ve watched and watched again… I’ll never get tired of watching Jamie Fraser.” Loznodami said: “Oh Sam ! I love this pic ! Next half coming soon! thank you for posting more BTS, it’s so funny and Droughtlander is shorter!”
